status for immigrants. some people thought this last election debacle there would be pointing fingers. there's a lot of that that goes on but some of this stuff is really i think productive for them now. >> rose: cyprus cyber warre and american politics when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: the debt crises in europe is back in the headlines, al eyes are on cyprus the tiny mediterranean nation. with the weekend the population was told by the eu the and the ifm on bank deposits in exchange for financial bailout. but early today the cyprusian government is sparking concern throughout the region. joining me is andrew ross sorkin of the "new york times" and francesco guerrera for financil economic. simon i'll win good you. what's going on. >> well the explanation part is that a number of cyprian banks gambled and lost in a big way on greek debt. they facing big losses and these banks are big relative to the economy. the economy needs financial assistance from the outside from the european union and
of social issues. the gop has struggled to define itself since the loss in the 2012 presidential election. joining me to help me understand this from washington al lent from boomberg view and mark halperin from "time" magazine. i'm pleased to have both of them back on this program. i begin with this al. as you know i've been in rome watching the new pope be selected. so i've been there getting religion and i've sort of lost sight what's going on in washington. give me an update of what i have missed. >> there's no white smoke coming out of the rnc building yet charlie i will tell you that. >> rose: what about the whitehouse. >> or the whitehouse. there's a great deal of ferment going on in the republican party right now which i think by and large is healthy. there's a couple caveats now but the previous report on immigration i think a lot of things are happening. rand paul today came out for at least legal status for immigrants. so i think some people thought after this last election debalk backal will be pointing fingers and there's a lot of that going on. some of this stuff i think is
. >> now that he's been elected it seems like the obvious choice. i think one of the big reasons was the age factor because so many of the cardinals have been saying ahead of time we need a younger man. extreme youth in this world is considered like 63. so he's 76 and he just, he wasn't on the radar but he was such a prominent player in the last conclave, you'd think he would be a natural. but you know, people overlook that. there was also the accepted wisdom that can come in second, it's bad form to then be elected. it's sort of in a way it's something of a slight on your predecessor. but really the resignation of benedict may have changed that whole way of thinking. if he can resign, well then such taboos are now over. >> rose: you said an interesting thing which you said which was the idea of first of all was he a man of faith, and secondly, was he a man who could govern. governorring seemed to be an important quality here. >> definitely. there's a real sense that things have to be straightened out. there was a great feeling of drift under benedict. his mind was focused on wr
.ll >> rose: so then bush-- there was an election in 2008, and barack obama was elected president. he come spodz office with what assumptions about iraq, and how did his views on iraq play out? >> well, president obama, as a candidate-- and i interviewed him twice on iraq, single subject, as a candidate-- his view was he campaigned on ae platform of taking all of the american combat brigades out inn 16 months with a date certain. >> rose: okay, then he gets into power, and he withdraws the troops. and then there are negotiations to leave some troops, which yous you believe was a significantwa mistake, that negotiation failed. and so they did not leave five, 000, or 10,000 troops there. 1 what happened? >> well, first off, withha president obama, he really did not fulfill his campaign promisf literally of taking the troops out in 16 months.s he pretted much ended up takingly them out on george bush's schedule, the end of 2011. two, the other thing is what people don't realize is the t obama administration tried to de a lot more than just take troops out. they tried to re-engineer the govern
hurt from the elections. and one of the criticisms leveled at him was he mismanaged the relationship with the united states. and here was the president all smiles and friendship and patting each other on the back. that was very good for mr. netanyahu. he relished it and he took advantage of it. but this was the first cause. the second cost somewhat less tasty for the prime minister. >> rose: what is less tasty for him? >> he himself endorsed or reendorsed the idea of two state solution for a palestinian state. but his concept of a state or his concept of a settlement is more modest than that of president obama. and when secretary of state kerry returns to the region in a short while to pursue the work, these differences will surface. they were not-- they came out unilaterally by the president in the speech but they will come up fully when secretary kerry returns to the region. >> rose: but how did barack obama come to the presidency with what attitudes did israel, what commitments, what sense of significance for him? >> i think you have two book ends to this story. the cairo speech o
's the only prime minister that has won back-to-back elections sequentially and the fact is he's challenged now by two upstarts. lapid and bennett, both of whom are not focused in the main on foreign policy and security issues but on social and economicnes so it's a paradox, in order to maintain his relevance as a foreign policy national security guy-- which is his strong suit-- the fact is he does need a better relationship with obama because obama holds the key on that front, certainly on iran. >> reporter: speaking of iran-- and i'll come back to that relationship-- is what the president saided in an interview with israeli television, will that comfort israelis? >> it certainly should comfort israelis. after all, the record suggests that the administration has worked very, very hard on the iranian challenge and the president has said that take my word, we're not interested in containing iran, we're interested in preventing iran from developing nuclear technology. i think it should assuage israelis who are concerned about this issue i wonder why-- and this seems to be part of the conversa
